Ode to Deli Meat [February 20th | 50/365]

Every day, I cherish you violently
as scissors through tough plastic.

I cherish you mechanically
as a hurried jeep with a flat tire,

cherish you summarily
as a clerk counts change before closing,

cherish you rapturously
as a child through gift wrap.

Each and every day, I cherish you silently
as contagions through the wispy air,

cherish you inorganically,
Biotin, Bonemeal,

cherish you sterilely,
Elastin, Estradiol;

Every day, I cherish you captiously,
a test for which you never studied.
